  • Drive, determination and a passion for working with children and their families.
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a large staff team.
  • A positive outlook and a resilient nature.
  • A commitment to developing their own, and others, practice as part of a team.
  • Knowledge and understanding of children with complex SEND.

If you feel you would be suitable to work within our supportive and friendly team, we would like to hear from you!
